Last night, to the chagrin of many Seattle basketball fans, the Oklahoma City Thunder, led by Sonics draft pick Kevin Durant, won the opening game of the NBA Finals, beating the Miami Heat. This morning, via Twitter, former Sonics player Detlef Schrempf provided some solace to the area's hurting b-ball fans, teasing some "big news" which he said would be coming later today.
At 7:26 a.m. Schrempf sent out his first excting tweet:
big news coming out today about the Sonics! We are on our way!— Detlef Schrempf (@Dschrempf) June 13, 2012
Three minutes later, he expanded on that thought:
Stay tuned! This time it is legit! Sonics will be back!— Detlef Schrempf (@Dschrempf) June 13, 2012
A rally featuring Gary Payton, Shawn Kemp, Slick Watts, Kevin Calabro, Blue Scholars, the Presidents of the United States of America and a perpetually hungover-looking Hansen has been scheduled for Thursday at 4 p.m. in Occidental Park.
